    With gaming cases, you can't go wrong with the Antec 1200, or the HAF932.

  3. What about the PSI CyborgX or PSI CycloneX
  4. ^5 +1 what shadow said.

    The Antec 1200 and the Coolermaster HAF 932 cases have excellent ventilation, airflow, and cooling. Both cases are among the best for cooling. I have a HAF 932. It is a huge beast. The is plenty of room for larger video cards. Cable management is excellent.

    The door on the front bezel of the Lexa S restricts airflow. The interior of the case is pretty much a standard configuration. Cable management is difficult. Larger video cards may not fit.
  5. I'd hold off until the new babies arrive that were shown at CES.

    as for now, I'll echo shadow's comment ....full towers offer several advantages and, side by side, are barely larger than today's mid towers.

    Antec 1200 w/ CP-850 ($244)

    HAF 932 w/ Corsair HX850 ($340)

    In the mid tower arena

    The Antec 900/902 and new LANBoy Air should be considered as well as the HAF 922. The NZXT seems to have some HS Fan and other clearance issues
